Call em up and ask.
All I know they are nearly 30 yrs on the market - supposed to be serious business. There are many stores here in Montreal.

And from the other side, I think you'll have canadian Pentax/Ricoh warranty anyways, just register your camera online.
So for me personally this question doesn't seem to make much sense.

I don't need one but I don't mind bumping posts for those who might be interested. If the dealer isn't Pentax authorized your "supposed" warranty is no good and won't help you if you have a problem even if you register online. So that's why people ask if the deal is associated with an authorized dealer, that's all.

ok, I see.

Sure, the best thing is to give them a call and ask.

...I doubt anybody will be selling Pentax being non-authorized. It is not so well known and promoted as canikons.

Centre-Hifi is a brick & Mortar chain in Quebec, so I doubt they would be selling photo equipment without being authorized....
Also, Pentax cameras carry a 2 - year warranty in Canada. So that's a great price. I paid 499 for my K30 alone in July ( from Henry's ° and that was already a great price! ( I already own the 18-55 WR..)

Yes, they are surely an authorized dealer. However, I'd make sure which lens is included in this deal. They are a big chain selling mostly audio stuff and TVs, with a small section for cameras in the stores - they are *not* photography experts. The black photo shows an 18-55 WR but the white (same price) photo has the non-WR displayed. One of them is likely because their webmaster put up the wrong pic. When I asked in-store previously, I was told the lens included is the non-WR 18-55mm. You could possibly haggle your way into the WR claiming they advertised it as such, but it's unlikely they actually have stock of that, IMHO. Centre Hi-fi has been discounting their K-30s for a while now...

correct.
There is a guy who has bought black one yesterday. He says that the lens is non-WR.
Still, it is good deal. I would say buying such a deal you get this lens nearly for free.

Congrats!
It won't disappoint you. Btw, the kit 18-55mm lens is suprisingly good too.
Here are few of those first pics the guy took on his new K-30 & 18-55 which he has bought on this deal

I got my K-30 there last fall when they went for 550. Just before Christmas some stores still had the K-r kit for 380$! (opened boxes) Might be worth the look for those interested.

Does anyone know of a merchant in the USA that has a similar deal? This outfit does not ship internationally from Canada.
